Someone's kindness knows no bounds.  An anonymous gift-giver left $10,000 in cash in a small donation box at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site at 20 Vesey St.  Typically, the box receives small donations such as pennies and a few dollars. Imagine the surprise when the preview site staff discovered this sizable and generous gift.

While we don't know who left the donation, everyone with the 9/11 Memorial is grateful that someone acknowledges the importance of supporting this national tribute.  

"We'd love to know who it was so we can say thank," 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels told the New York Post. Read more about the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site and about this mysterious donor in The Post.
